Would you by chance have a non-crossbolt stock for an M1 Thompson?
I would be needing one of those too.

I don't know what it is with Corvettes and old guys because I am not old! I am 30 and have owned my Vette for 5 years now. I will ask my dad what the deal is, he is 53 and owns a 1968 conv. Vette!
The way it is going now Thompson prices are catching up to Corvette prices. 5 years ago I paid 19,500 for my 58 Vette. That might get me a 1921 Colt in decent shape today!

As PO notes, even with a full model year delay, the '68 was a disaster in all respects. I had a '73 that I bought new. I was not the least bit upset when it was stolen about a year and a half after I bought it. Chevrolet had still not completely fixed things. The paint was like it had been applied with a toothbrush and the (manual) trans never worked right.
No plans to ever by another. I must be dense, it took me three to learn.

While traing for the Mercury space flights all of the original Astronauts had fast and flashy sports cars(including a few Corvettes).....except one. John Glenn, coincidentaly the only Marine of the group. When asked about his restraint in this sea of tesosterone Glenn replied he didn't need one of these sports cars he thought "were a hedge against the male menopause".
